Thank you for any and all help
(Or did you mean a different Orphan Act? Like one of those projects that helps orphan children?)
But I get the sense that this may be more related to the English Poor Laws? The Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834 (the "New Poor Law") established orphanages and children’s homes that were (or became) basically workhouses. That's at least a topic about which some books would have been written (though I don't have any). Main Wikipedia article.
